NON, JE REGRETTE RIEN by Edit Piaf

Non, rien de rien,
non, je ne regrette rien!
Ni le bien qu'on m'a fait,
ni le mal;
tout ça m'est bien egal!

Non, rien de rien,
non, je ne regrette rien!
C'est payé,
balayé,
oublié.

Je me fous du passé!

Avec mes souvenirs
j'ai allumé le feu!
Mes chagrins, mes plaisirs,
je n'ai plus besoin d'eux!
Balayés les amours
avec leurs trémolos,
balayer pour toujours!
Je repars à zéro.

Non, rien de rien,
non, je ne regrette rien!
Ni le bien qu'on m'a fait,
ni le mal;
tout ça m'est bien egal!

Non, rien de rien,
non, je ne regrette rien!
Car ma vie,
car me joies
aujourd'hui
ça commence avec toi!

Translation:

No, nothing.
No, I regret nothing.
Neither the good done to me, nor the bad;
to me, they're all the same.

No, nothing at all.
No, I regret nothing.
It's all paid for, swept away, forgotten;
I don't care about the past.

With my memories,
I've lit a fire.
My sorrows, my pleasures,
I need them no more.

Swept away are my loves
and all their tremors.
Swept away forever.
I start from scratch.

No, nothing really.
No, I have no regrets.
Neither the good done to me, nor the bad;
to me, they're all the same.

No, nothing.
No, I regret nothing.
Because my life, because my joys,
today, begin with you.

"THE SHOW MUST GO ON" Queen ( My fav song of all time)

Empty spaces - what are we living for
Abandoned places - I guess we know the score
On and on, does anybody know what we are looking for...
Another hero, another mindless crime
Behind the curtain, in the pantomime
Hold the line, does anybody want to take it anymore
The show must go on
The show must go on, yeah
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

Whatever happens, I'll leave it all to chance
Another heartache, another failed romance
On and on, does anybody know what we are living for ?
I guess I'm learning (I'm learning learning learning)
I must be warmer now
I'll soon be turning (turning turning turning)
Round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free
The show must go on
The show must go on, yeah yeah
Ooh, inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

Yeah yeah, whoa wo oh oh

My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
Fairytales of yesterday will grow but never die
I can fly - my friends
The show must go on (go on, go on, go on) yeah yeah
The show must go on (go on, go on, go on)
I'll face it with a grin
I'm never giving in
On - with the show

Ooh, I'll top the bill, I'll overkill
I have to find the will to carry on
On with the show
On with the show
The show - the show must go on


I think I love ya June :hug:
It's so cool you love her music
I haven't met anyone who likes her.
:hug: :hug: :hug: :hug:


:hug: :hug: :hug: back!
How can you NOT like Piaf????? :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: Probably because people judged the way she lived, rather than her music...

She- Charles Aznavour

She
May be the face I can't forget
A trace of pleasure or regret
May be my treasure or the price I have to pay
She may be the song that summer sings
May be the chill that autumn brings
May be a hundred tearful things
Within the measure of the day.

She
May be the beauty or the beast
May be the famine or the feast
May turn each day into a heaven or a hell
She may be the mirror of my dreams
A smile reflected in a stream
She may not be what she may seem
Inside a shell

She who always seems so happy in a crowd
Whose eyes can be so private and so proud
No one's allowed to see them when they cry
She may be the love that can and hope to last
May come to me from shadows of the past
That I remember till the day I die

She
May be the reason I survive
The why and where for I'm alive
The one I'll care for through the rough and rainy years
Me I'll take her laughter and her tears
And make them all my souvenirs
For where she goes I got to be
The meaning of my life is

She, she, she

One of my all time favourites:

Cut Out
by John Frusciante

Your number fakes coming along without you
Knowing a shift took place
Your father hooks a wing about you
If you flail this broken sword around youll
Cut nothing up
Again well face these things when theyre dead issues
Moments take each others place
Born and forgotten the same way
Hey, ill pay you to cut me out
A blower of hot flesh is a baby
Thats the first whits stuff i sucked
To feed this open fire with a windy day
Moments take each others place
Born and forgotten the same way
Never knowing who you are

"Our Lady of Sorrows" My Chemical Romance

"We could be perfect one last night,
And die like star-crossed lovers when we fight.
We could settle this affair,
If you could shed your yellow,
Take my hand,
And then we'll solve the mystery of laceration gravity,
This riddle of revenge.

Stand up f***ing tall,
Don't let them see your back,
And take my f***ing hand,
And never be afraid again.

We've only got one chance,
To put things at an end,
And cross the patron saint of switchblade fights.

You said we're not celebrities,
We spark and fade,
They die by threes.
I'll make you understand,
You can trade me for an apparition.

Stand up f***ing tall,
Don't let them see your back,
And take my f***ing hand,
And never be afraid again.

And never trust,
You said,
Who put the words in your head?

Oh, how wrong we were to think,
That immortality meant never dying."



The last two lines are my favorite..

Tears in Heaven – Eric Clapton

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven
Will it be the same
If I saw you in heaven
I must be strong, and carry on
Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven
I'll find my way, through night and day
Cause I know I just can't stay
Here in heaven

Time can bring you down
Time can bend your knee
Time can break your heart
Have you begging please
Begging please

Beyond the door
There's peace I'm sure.
And I know there'll be no more...
Tears in heaven

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven
Will it be the same
If I saw you in heaven
I must be strong, and carry on
Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven

Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven


That song is so sad, and do you know why he wrote it? His son died when he was very young because he fell off the balcony of a building, so basically the song is about wanting to meet his son in heaven :cry:

Gah, I know it kinda looks like obsession, but Morgenstern really touches me. As I'm sure you all know.

Morgenstern
Sie ist hässlich dass es graut
wenn sie in den Himmel schaut
Dann fürchtet sich das Licht
Scheint ihr von unten ins Gesicht
So muss sie sich am Tag verstecken
Will das Licht doch nicht erschrecken
Lebt im Schatten bis der Schein vergeht
Sieht einen Stern im Zwielicht prangen und fleht
Mal mir Schönheit auf die Wangen

Morgenstern ach scheine
auf das Antlitz mein
Wirf ein warmes Licht
auf mein Ungesicht
Sag mir ich bin nicht alleine
Hässlich, du bist hässlich

Ich bin allein zur Nacht gegangen
Die späten Vögel nicht mehr sangen
Sah Sonnenkinder im Gewimmel und so
rief ich in den gestirnten Himmel

Morgenstern ach scheine
auf die Liebste meine
Wirf ein warmes Licht
auf ihr Ungesicht
Sag ihr sie ist nicht alleine

Morgenstern ach scheine
auf die Seele meine
Wirf ein warmes Licht
auf ein Herz das bricht
Sag ihr dass ich weine
Denn du, du bist hässlich
Du bist einfach hässlich
Der Mensch ist doch ein Augentier
Schöne Dinge wünsch' ich mir
Doch du, du bist nicht schön, nein

Morgenstern ach scheine
auf die Liebste meine
Wirf ein warmes Licht
auf ihr Ungesicht
Sag ihr sie ist nicht alleine

Und der Stern will scheinen
Auf die Liebste meine
Wärmt die Brust mir bebt
wo das Leben schlägt
Mit dem Herzen sehen
Sie ist wunderschön


Also, this song is my "Cry" song hahaha. It does help though when you're upset

Def Leppard - Have you Ever Needed Someone so Bad
Here I am, Im in the wrong bed again
Its a game I just cant win
There you are breathin soft on my skin, yeah
Still you wont let me in
So come on

Why save your kisses for a rainy day
Baby let the moment take your heart away

Have you ever needed someone so bad, yeah
Have you ever wanted someone you just couldnt have
Did you ever try so hard that your world just fell apart
Have you ever needed someone so bad
And youre the girl I gotta have
I gotta have you baby, yeah

There you go, midnight promises again, yeah
But theyre broken by the dawn
You wanna go further, faster everyday, baby
But in the morning youll be gone
And Im alone

Why save your kisses for a rainy day
Baby let the moment take your heart away

Have you ever needed someone so bad, yeah
Have you ever wanted someone you just couldnt have
Did you ever try so hard that your world just fell apart
Have you ever needed someone so bad

Every dream I dream is like
Some kinda rash n reckless scene
To give out such crazy love
You must be some kinda drug
And if my time dont ever come
For me youre still the one
Damned if I dont, damned if I do
I gotta get a fix on you

Have you ever needed someone so bad, yeah
Have you ever wanted someone you just couldnt have
Did you ever try so hard that your world just fell apart
Have you ever needed someone so bad, so bad
Have you ever wanted someone, have you ever wanted someone, yeah
Did you ever try so hard that your wourld just fell apart
Have you ever needed someone so bad
And youre the girl I gotta have
I gotta have you baby, yeah

Its a game I just cant win, oh

Have you ever needed someone so bad, yeah
Have you ever wanted someone
Have you ever wanted someone, you just couldnt have
Did you ever tried so hard, yeah

Nirvana - Half the Man I Used to Be

Forward yesterday
Makes me wanna stay
What they said was real
Makes me wanna steal
Livin' under house
Guess I'm livin', I'm a mouse
All's I gots is time
Got no meaning, just a rhyme

Take time with a wounded hand
'cause it likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand
'cause I like to steal
Take time with a wounded hand
'cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

I'm half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Well, I'm half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Well, I'm half the man I used to me
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Well, I'm half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be

Feelin' uninspired
Think I'll start a fire
Everybody run
Bobby's got a gun
Think you're kinda neat
Then she tells me I'm a creep
Friends don't mean a thing
Guess I'll leave it up to me

Take time with a wounded hand
'cause it likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand
Guess I like to steal
Take time with a wounded hand
'cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

I'm half the man I used to me
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be

Take time with a wounded hand
'cause it likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand
Guess I like to steal
Take time with a wounded hand
'cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

I'm half the man I used to me
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be,
Half the man I used to be


Pearl Jam - Black(Typical popular Pearl Jam song but it's amazing)
Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay
Were laid spread out before me as her body once did.
All five horizons revolved around her soul
As the earth to the sun
Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn

Ooh, and all I taught her was everything
Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore
And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds
Of what was everything.
Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

I take a walk outside
I'm surrounded by some kids at play
I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear?
Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head
I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning
How quick the sun can drop away

And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass
Of what was everything?
All the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

All the love gone bad turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I'll be... yeah...
Uh huh... uh huh... ooh...

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life,
I know you'll be a sun in somebody else's sky, but why
Why, why can't it be, why can't it be mine

Halo by Depeche Mode

You wear guilt
Like shackles on your feet
Like a halo in reverse
I can feel
The discomfort in your seat
And in your head it's worse

There's a pain
A famine in your heart
An aching to be free
Can't you see
All love's luxuries
Are here for you and me

And when our worlds
They fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it

Bring your chains
Your lips of tragedy
And fall into my arms

And when our worlds
They fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it


Walking In My Shoes (also) by Depeche Mode - my theme song as it were, these words mean a lot to me

I would tell you about the things they put me through
The pain I've been subjected to
But the Lord himself would blush
The countless feasts laid at my feet
Forbidden fruits for me to eat
But I think your pulse would start to rush

Now I'm not looking for absolution
Forgiveness for the things I do
But before you come to any conclusions
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I kept
If you try walking in my shoes
If you try walking in my shoes

Morality would frown upon
Decency look down upon
The scapegoat fate's made of me
But I promise now, my judge and jurors
My intentions couldn't have been purer
My case is easy to see

I'm not looking for a clearer conscience
Peace of mind after what I've been through
And before we talk of any repentance
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I kept
If you try walking in my shoes
If you try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

Now I'm not looking for absolution
Forgiveness for the things I do
But before you come to any conclusions
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I kept
If you try walking in my shoes
You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I kept
If you try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes
If you try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

which song i like is

Die Ärzte
1 2 Lovesong
Ich weiß, Du wirst mich vermissen,
auch wenn Du jetzt gehen mußt.
Keine Geigen mehr, wenn wir uns küssen.
Ich hab' es einfach nicht gewußt.
Ich hoff' meine Worte machen es nicht noch schlimmer.
Vergiß nur einmal Deinen Stolz.
Ich weiß Du liebst mich noch immer.
chorus
Soll es das gewesen sein (wie im Lovesong)?
Fällt uns denn keine Lösung ein (wie im Lovesong)?
Die Möglichkeit ist viel zu klein (für'n Lovesong),
doch ich liebe nur Dich allein.
Vieles ist zur Gewohnheit verkommen,
doch das ist immer die Gefahr.
Routine hat ihren Platz eingenommen,
bis es nicht mehr auszuhalten war.
Ich hoff' meine Worte machen es nicht noch schlimmer.
Vergiß nur einmal Deinen Stolz. Ich weiß Du liebst mich noch immer.
Soll es das gewesen sein (wie im Lovesong)?
Fällt uns denn keine Lösung ein (wie im Lovesong)?
Die Möglichkeit ist viel zu klein (wie im Lovesong),
doch ich liebe nur Dich allein.
Love, love, love, love, (2mal)
Ich weiß, Du wirst mich vermissen.
Ich vermisse Dich schon jetzt.
Ich vermiss' auch die Geigen, vermiss' Dich zu küssen.
Nichts auf dieser Welt, was Dich ersetzt.
Ich hoff' meine Worte machen es nicht noch schlimmer.
Vergiß nur einmal Deinen Stolz. Ich weiß Du liebst mich noch immer.
Soll es das gewesen sein (wie im Lovesong)?
Fällt uns denn keine Lösung ein (wie im Lovesong)?
Die Möglichkeit ist viel zu klein (wie im Lovesong),
doch ich liebe nur Dich allein.
Soll es das gewesen sein (wie im Lovesong)?
Fällt uns denn keine Lösung ein (wie im Lovesong)?
Die Möglichkeit ist viel zu klein (wie im Lovesong),
doch ich liebe nur Dich allein.

Here's a song I've fallen for: "Poison Heart" by The Ramones...

No one ever thought this one would survive
Helpless child, gonna walk a drum beat behind
Lock you in a dream, never gonna let you go
Never let you laugh or smile, not you

chorus: Well, I just want to walk right out of this world
'Cause everybody has a poison heart
I just want to walk right out of this world
'Cause everybody has a poison heart

Making friends with a homeless torn up man
He just kind of smiles, it really shakes me up
There's danger on every corner but I'm okay
Walking down the street trying to forget yesterday

(chorus)
(repeat last two lines)

You know that life really takes its toll
And a poet's gut reaction is to search his very soul
So much damn confusion before my eyes,
But nothing seems to phase me and this one still survives

I just want to walk right out of this world
'Cause everybody has a poison heart (repeat 2x, basically)

This song sounds a lot like my life in the past and where I am now.

A song that sums up my views on religion (this is only my view, please don't take offence)

Blasphemous Rumours - Depeche Mode

Girl of 16
Whole life ahead of her
Slashed her wrists
Bored with life
Didn't succeed
Thank the lord
For small mercies

Fighting back the tears
Mother reads the note again
16 candles burn in her mind
She takes the blame
It's always the same
She goes down on her knees
And prays

I don't want to start
Any blasphemous rumours
But I think that God's
Got a sick sense of humour
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing

Girl of 18
Fell in love with everything
Found new life
In Jesus Christ
Hit by a car
Ended up
On a life support machine

Summer's day
As she passed away
Birds were singing
In the summer sky
Then came the rain
And once again
A tear fell
From her mother's eye

Beautiful lyrics here!

Here's a tiny contribution from me:

Queen - A winter's tale

'The dream of the child is the hope of the man'

And well... Emigrate - In my tears



My sickness slips inside you
Drowning in my poison
Desperately I hide too from heaven

Now we’ll be together
I can make you better
Siphon your pain in me, so I bleed

Feed your dreams to fishes
Lie about your wishes
Eat away at your time, seconds are mine

Sometimes it seems we’re toxic
Wake me up and shock it
My low self-esteem
Can make me scream

In my tears
Don’t let me drown
My fears
Don’t make a sound
My tears
Don’t break me down
In my tears
Don’t let me drown

It’s only my psychosis
Feeling thorns of roses
Fill the void inside me
So you see

Feed me tranquilizers
Calm the storm inside us
It’s so perverse to say
That I’m blind

In my tears
Don’t let me drown
My fears
Don’t make a sound
My tears
Don’t break me down
In my tears
Don’t let me drown

Why Don't You Get a Job
By: The Offspring

My friend's got a girlfriend
man he hates that bitch
he tells me every day
He says "Man I really gotta lose my chick
in the worst kind of way"

She sits on her ass
he works his hands to the bone
to give her money every payday
but she wants more dinero just to stay at home

Well my friend
You gotta say

I won't pay, I won't pay ya, no way
why don't you get a job
say no way, say no way, no way
why don't you get a job

I guess all his money, well it isn't enough
to keep her bill collectors at bay
I guess all his money, well it isn't enough
cause that girl's got expensive taste

I won't pay, I won't pay ya, no way
why don't you get a job
say no way, say no way, no way
why don't you get a job

Well I guess it ain't easy doing nothing at all
But hey man free rides just don't come
along every day

Let me tell you about my other friend now
my friend's got a boyfriend
man she hates that dick
she tells me every day
he wants more dinero just to stay at home
well my friend you gotta say
I won't pay, I won't pay ya, no way
why don't you get a job
say no way, say no way, no way
why don't you get a job

I wont give you your money
always pray
why dont you get a job
say no way, say no way, no way
why don't you get a job

hey thats something everyone can enjoy


Fallen Leaves
By: Billy Talent

In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground

I hitched a ride, until the coast
To leave behind, all of my ghosts
Searching for something, I couldn't find at home

Can't get no job, can you spare a dime?
Just one more hit, and I'll be fine
I swear to God, this'll be my one last time!

In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground
Run away before you drown, or the streets will beat you down
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground

When it gets dark, in Pigeon Park
Voice in my head, will soon be fed
By the vultures, that circle round the dead!

In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground
Run away before you drown, or the streets will beat you down
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground

I never once thought, I'd ever be caught!
Staring at sidewalks, hiding my track marks!
I left my best friends, or did they just leave me?

In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground
In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground
Run away before you drown, or the streets will beat you down
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground

Run away before you drown!
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground
Run away before you drown!
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground

Here's some from me :)

Hopesfall - Escape Pod for Intangibles


I left the horizon
Curled up and frozen still
The tilting of the hourglass
With all this time to kill

I left the horizon...

Daft Punk - Something About Us

It might not be the right time
I might not be the right one
But there's something about us I want to say
Cause there's something between us anyway

I might not be the right one
It might not be the right time
But there's something about us I've got to do
Some kind of secret I will share with you

I need you more than anything in my life
I want you more than anything in my life
I'll miss you more than anyone in my life
I love you more than anyone in my life

Trans-Siberian Orchestra - Old City Bar

In an old city bar
That is never too far
From the places that gather
The dreams that have been

In the safety of night
With its old neon light
It beckons to strangers
And they always come in

And the snow it was falling
The neon was calling
The music was low
And the night
Christmas Eve

And here was the danger
That even with strangers
Inside of this night
It's easier to believe

Then the door opened wide
And a child came inside
That no one in the bar
Had seen there before

And he asked did we know
That outside in the snow
That someone was lost
Standing outside our door

Then the bartender gazed
Through the smoke and the haze
Through the window and ice
To a corner streetlight

Where standing alone
By a broken pay phone
Was a girl the child said
Could no longer get home

And the snow it was falling
The neon was calling
The bartender turned
And said, not that I care
But how would you know this?
The child said I've noticed
If one could be home
They'd be all ready there


Then the bartender came out from behind the bar
And in all of his life he was never that far
And he did something else that he thought no one saw
When he took all the cash from the register draw

Then he followed the child to the girl 'cross the street
And we watched from the bar as they started to speak
Then he called for a cab and he said J.F.K.
Put the girl in the cab and the cab drove away
And we saw in his hand
That the cash was all gone
From the light that she had wished upon

If you want to arrange it
This world you can change it
If we could somehow make this
Christmas thing last

By helping a neighbor
Or even a stranger
And to know who needs help
You need only just ask

Then he looked for the child
But the child wasn't there
Just the wind and the snow
Waltzing dreams through the air

So he walked back inside
Somehow different I think
For the rest of the night
No one paid for a drink

And the cynics will say
That some neighborhood kid
Wandered in on some bums
In the world where they hid

But they weren't there
So they couldn't see
By an old neon star
On that night, Christmas Eve

When the snow it was falling
The neon was calling
And in case you should wonder
In case you should care

Why we're on our own
Never went home
On that night of all nights
We were already there


(the verse in red always gets to me...:()

This song reminds me of three special boys. Sometimes I wonder what would happen if . . .

"Come Down To Me" -- Saving Jane

Words fall out of my mouth
And I can’t seem to trace what I’m saying
Everybody wants your time
I’m just dreaming out loud,
I can’t have you for mine and I know it
I just wanna watch you shine.

Tripping up on my tongue,
It’s all over my face and I’m racing
Gotta get away from you
Burning all the way home,
Try to put it to bed but it chases
Every little thing I do

When the light falls on your face,
Don’t let it change you
When the stars get in your eyes,
Don’t let them blind you.

[CHORUS]
You’re beautiful
Just the way you are
And I love it all
Every line, and every scar
And I wish that I could make you see
This is where you ought to be,
Come down to me.

Spell it out in a song,
Bet you never catch on to my weakness
I’m singing every word for you.
Here I’m thinking I’m sly
Then you’re catching my eye, and just maybe
You’re thinking what I’m thinking too

When you see it on my face,
Don’t let it shake you
I know better than to try and
Take you with me.

[CHORUS X1]

oomph - das letzte streichholz

Sie küsste sanft ihr liebstes Spielzeug
Bevor sie es zerbrach
Dan schlich sie sich vor dunkler Sehnsucht
Ins kalte Schlafgemach

Sie holte leis das letzte Streichholz
Aus Vaters Schrank hervor
"Warum hast du mir nie geholfen"
Schrie sie in Mutters Ohr

"Ich hoffe, dass wir uns nie wieder sehn!"

Refrain:
Damit ihr wisst, wie es ist
In der Hölle zu sein
Damit ihr wisst, wie es ist
Nach Erlösung zu schrein
Nur deshalb komm ich zurück
Mit flammendem Blick
Ich nehm das letzte Streichholz
Und verbrenne eure schöne heile Welt

Sie kochte sich die letzte Mahlzeit
Bevor sie sich erbrach
Dann spukte sie voll tiefer Abscheu
Ins schwarze Schlafgemach

"Ich hoffe, dass wir uns nie wieder sehn"
(Nie wieder!Nie wieder!)

Refrain:
Damit ihr wisst, wie es ist
In der Hölle zu sein
Damit ihr wisst, wie es ist
Nach Erlösung zu schrein
Nur deshalb komm ich zurück
Mit flammendem Blick
Ich nehm das letzte Streichholz
Und verbrenne eure Welt

Damit ihr wisst, wie es ist
In der Hölle zu sein
Damit ihr wisst, wie es ist
Nach Erlösung zu schrein
Nur deshalb komm ich zurück
Mit flammendem Blick
Ich nehm das letzte Streichholz
Und verbrenne eure schöne heile Welt

Wisst ihr jetzt, wie die Hölle wirklich ist?
Wisst ihr jetzt, wie die Hölle wirklich ist?
Wisst ihr, dass euer Spiel zu Ende ist?
Wisst ihr, dass eure Liebe tödlich ist?

Refrain:
Damit ihr wisst, wie es ist
In der Hölle zu sein
Damit ihr wisst, wie es ist
Nach Erlösung zu schrein
Nur deshalb komm ich zurück
Mit flammendem Blick
Ich nehm das letzte Streichholz
Und verbrenne eure Welt

Damit ihr wisst, wie es ist
In der Hölle zu sein
Damit ihr wisst, wie es ist
Nach Erlösung zu schrein
Nur deshalb komm ich zurück
Mit flammendem Blick
Ich nehm das letzte Streichholz
Und verbrenne eure schöne heile Welt


the offspring - self esteem

La la la la la la la la la la
I wrote her off for the tenth time today
And practiced all the things I would say
When she came over I lost my nerve
I took her back and made her dessert
Now I know I'm being used
But that's okay man cause I like the abuse
I know she's playing with me
But that's okay cause I've got no self esteem

chorus:
Oh wayo, yeah, yeah
Ohhhhhhh, yeah, yeah (Repeat three times)

We make plans go out at night
I wait till 2 then I turn out the light
this rejection’s got me so low
If she keeps it up I just might tell her so

Chorus

When she's saying, oh that she wants only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she saying, oh that I'm like a disease
Then I wonder how much more I can stand
Well I guess, I should stick up for myself
But I really think it's better this way
The more you suffer
The more it shows you really care
Right? Yeah!

Now I'll relay this little bit
It happens more than I'd like to admit
Late at night, she knocks on my door
She's drunk again and, looking to score
Now I know, I should say no, but
It's kind of hard when she's ready to go
I may be dumb, but I'm not a dweeb
I'm just a sucker with no self esteem

Chorus

When she's saying, oh that she wants only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she's saying, oh that I'm like a disease
Then I wonder how much more I can spend
Well I guess, I should stick up for myself
But I really think it's better this way
The more you suffer
The more it shows you really care
Right? Yeah!


nichts in der welt -die ärzte

es ist vorbei, und der himmel ist schwarz
weil die sonne hier nie wieder scheint
es ist vorbei, doch ich hoffe, dass das,
was uns trennte uns wieder vereint
es ist vorbei und nichts in der welt
wird es je wieder gut machen können
es ist vorbei - wenn ich könnte, dann würde ich
vor meinem leben wegrennen

würd die augen verschliessen und ich würde probieren
meine gefühle einfach zu ignorieren
ich will so kalt sein, dass alle erfrieren
will mich nie mehr verlieben, um nie mehr zu verliern

es dauert noch bis ich begreife, was das heisst:
es ist vorbei, ich weiss nicht warum, sag mir, was hab ich falsch gemacht
es ist vorbei, du hast mein herz zerfetzt und dir gar nichts dabei gedacht

du bist so grausam-darum liebe ich dich
obwohl ich doch weiss, dass du nicht gut bist für mich
meine gefühle, die sind an und für sich
lächerlich einfach-und einfach lächerlich

weil jeder gedanke nur um das eine kreist:
es ist vorbei, vorbei, vorbei (4x)

(instrumental)

es ist vorbei, doch idiotischerweise will ich immer noch bei dir sein
es ist vorbei-und ich will nicht begreifen:
jeder mensch ist für immer allein

liebe ist nur ein traum, eine idee und nicht mehr
tief im innern bleibt jeder einsam und leer
es heisst, dass jedes ende auch ein anfang wär
doch warum tut es so weh und warum ist es so schwer

ich lasse dich gehn auch wenn es mich zereisst
es ist vorbei, vorbei, vorbei (4x)
es ist vorbei und nichts in der welt wird es je wieder gut machen können

i have some very special songs that i love and are very close to my heart:

the clash - this is england - i love joe strummer, i know it sounds stupid but he has taught me so much and really touched me. this song just reminds about all the crap that england can be, like starving people and hypocracy of the government, and yet it is my home land so i am obliged to hold in dear in my heart.

The Clash - This is England:
I hear a gang fire on a human factory farm
Are they howling out or doing somebody harm
On a catwalk jungle somebody grabbed my arm
A voice spoke so cold it matched the weapon in her palm

This is England
This knife of Sheffield steel
This is England
This is how we feel

Time on his hands freezing in those clothes
He won't go for the carrot
They beat him by the pole
Some sunny day confronted by his soul
He's out at sea, too far off, he can't go home

This is England
What we're supposed to die for
This is England
And we're never gonna cry no more

Black shadow of the Vincent
Falls on a Triumph line
I got my motorcycle jacket
But I'm walking all the time
South Atlantic wind blows
Ice from a dying creed
I see no glory
When will we be free

This is England
We can chain you to the rail
This is England
We can kill you in a jail

The British boots go kick them
Got 'em in the head
Police ain't watchin'
The newspapers been read
Who cares to protest
A (???) in the eye like a flare
Out came the batons and
The British warned themselves

This is England
The land of (il)legal dances
This is England
Land of a thousand stances
This is England
This knife of Sheffield steel
This is England
This is how we feel
This is England
This is England

the second song that is really meaningful to me is Eric Clapton's - Wonderful Tonight. my dad used to sing this to me when i was little to get me to sleep, and i have always loved it since then.

Eric Clapton - Wonderful Tonight

It's late in the evening.
She's wond'ring what clothes to wear.
She puts on her make up,
and brushes her long blonde hair.

And the she asks me: "Do I look alright?"
And I say "Yes, you look wonderful tonight."

Ref:
I feel wonderful,
because I see the love light in your eyes.
Then the wonder of it all,
is that you just dont realize how much I love you.

We go to a party,
And everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady
is walking around with me.

And then she asks me: "Do you feel alright?"
And I say "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight."

Ref:
I feel wonderful,
because I see the love light in your eyes.
Then the wonder of it all,
is that you just dont realize how much I love you.

It's time to go home now,
And I've got an aching head.
So I give her the car keys,
and she helps me to bed.

And then I tell her, as I turn out the light,
I say "My darling, you are wonderful tonight,
oh, my darling, you are wonderful tonight."
